Knee pain is a frequent complaint in ambulatory practice. Because of its complexity, the knee is prone to trauma, arthritis and the impact of aging. Septic arthritis is an emergency and has to be suspected when important knee pain is associated with fever, an alteration of the general condition, or in a particular social context.
